CONSTRUCTION of the first special crossing Jalan Sungai Buloh-Subang will begin on Oct 23 and will take a month.
The crossing is 65m long and 12m high. It will link the Rubber Research Institute to the Sungai Buloh Industrial Park.
MRT Corp strategic communications and public relations director Amir Mahmood Razak said a comprehensive traffic management system would be implemented throughout the construction period.
A contraflow traffic system will be implemented at the two-lane carriageway of Jalan Sungai-Buloh Subang (Shah Alam bound).
The contraflow will take effect from 10pm to 6am daily. Other lanes will be closed to accommodate large machinery.
There will be no contraflow on public holidays and during the day.
Two other special crossings will be built along the stretch from Kota Damansara to Dataran Sunway for Package V2 (construction and completion of viaduct guideway and associated works), located in Surian Industrial Park and at Persiaran Surian opposite Seroja Apartments.
“The weather will play a part,” said Amir in a press conference at the MRT information centre in Kota Damansara, adding that construction was expected to start either in December or January.
“The special crossing in Jalan Sungai Buloh-Subang is one of 21 special spans that will be constructed across the elevated section of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.
Amir said construction of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line was on track at 26%, while 35% of underground work had been completed.
Also present at the press conference were MMC-Gamuda (PDP) deputy construction director Adil Putra Ahmad and Gadang Engineering project director Leaw Pang Kiat.
